According to Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald, the Dolphins and wide receiver Brian Hartline believe they can strike a deal before free agency starts up on March 12th.
On Hartline, the sides continue to talk. Agent Drew Rosenhaus is nothing if not persistent. Hartline wants to remain in Miami and believes he has a chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill. But he also wants $6 million per season.
Obviously, the Dolphins have so far resisted this price point. Both sides at this point believe something can get done before the start of free agency.
It is possible the Dolphins might decide paying $8 million for another, more accomplished wide receiver such as Greg Jennings is better than paying $6 million to Hartline. The Dolphins are almost certain to chase Mike Wallace as their top free agency target, as well.
